Delicious, soft, jewel colored Merino roving or top for spinning 4 oz. Please let me know if you need more and I shall be happy to list it for you.
**Yarn shown is for example only & not for sale.

This roving contains subtle, muted tones of dusty rose. 'Next to the skin soft'.

Pictured with the roving is a 2 ply dk/worsted weight yarn that I spun from it.

This roving has been designed by me. Colors are not repeatable, so please purchase what you need while I have them in stock.

Content: 100% supersoft Merino wool.
Hand wash gently in cold water. Do not agitate (or it will felt). Lay flat to dry.

Suggestions for quantities:
4 oz = a long scarf OR a par of socks OR a hat & fingerless mitts.
8 oz = hat, scarf & fingerless mitts.
1 lb = small, sleeveless vest.
1.5 to 2 lbs = a full sleeved sweater.

Plying & its effects on the final knitted garment:
-Single ply will be 'stripey' and may lead to 'pooling' in the final garment.
-Double plies (as pictured in yarn) are best for a well distributed 'tweed' effect and will greatly reduce or even eliminate 'pooling' especially when the fiber is pre-drafted before spinning.
-3 plies will almost always eliminate 'striping' and 'pooling' & are best for a “heathered tweed” or non pooling effect. 3 plying will also create a very sturdy yarn for long wearing garments.

Colors may vary slightly depending on your monitor.
